Triton Men's Basketball League final four set - Dec 10, 2017

It's a big weekend of basketball at the UOG Calvo Field House. The top four men's basketball teams in the Triton Men's Basketball League face off Saturday Dec. 9 following the completion of the first round of playoffs Thursday night. The championship game is 2 p.m. Sunday. And there's the IIAAG Girls High School championship Saturday night too. The KFC Bombers and the Harper Valley Kennel Toothfairies both secured wins on Thursday to advance to the semifinals. Kicking off the games at 12 p.m. will be the first semifinal game between the No. 2 seeded MVP Stars and KFC Bombers - both teams sported the same record in the regular season, but the Stars got the higher seed for fewer points allowed and earned a bye in the first round. The decision forced the Bombers to play an extra game in the playoffs wherein they defeated the UOG Trident Men's Basketball Club, 132-116, to earn their ticket to the semifinals.
In the second semifinal matchup at 2 pm on Saturday, the No. 1 seeded UOG Tritons face the No. 4 Toothfairies for the second time this week. UOG defeated the Toothfairies on Tuesday night, 98-86, in an intense game that saw the Toothfairies take a nine-point lead in the third quarter over the Tritons and led by four points going into the fourth quarter. But the Tritons hit a higher gear in the last ten minutes of the game to win by 12 points. The Toothfairies defeated the No. 5 seed MacTech Nerds122-85 on Thursday night to earn another shot at the Tritons on Saturday afternoon. The Tritons are newcomers to the higher level of play as UOG has struggled to win in the first three Guam Basketball Association seasons. The Tritons have now played in the other higher level tournaments since the team started in the spring of 2016. But with the addition of four stateside players this fall plus some new local talent and a core of toughened returnees, the Tritons have ran their record to 18-0 for this fall, winning the Guam Basketball Challenge in September with a 8-0 record and now running 10-0 in the TMBL. Members from Andersen Air Force Base have been a basketball power on the island for 20 plus years and have won many championships in their history. They were also the Spring 2017 GBA Champions after defeating the MVP Stars in the finals. The Stars had an undefeated team in the GBA spring season and have some of the best scorers on the island. The Harper Valley Kennel Toothfairies won the first two GBA titles and were known as the Sushi Rockets when they won their first title. 'I think we have a great final four and these are the four best men's basketball teams on the island besides the national team of course," said Doug Palmer, UOG Athletic Director and TMBL Commissioner. "It should be a great day of basketball at the UOG Calvo Field House." The TMBL Championship game will be on Sunday at 2 pm in the UOG Calvo Field House. All TMBL games are free to the public.
